Marija Serifovic has been forced to cancel her trip to Norway where she was supposed to be performing tomorrow night at the Eurovision Memory Lane concert in Oslo in front of an estimated 5,000 crowd tomorrow night. Marija is currently hospitalised after straining her vocal chords and will not be able to travel to Oslo.
The producer of the memory lane event told Gaysir website "this is very sad, especially for a young talent such as Marija. She has promised to come to Norway this autumn but until then, she has to rest her voice". He went on to wish Marija a speedy recovery to the problem which is most likely down to her gruelling schedule since winning the Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki. Marija played at the Budva festival on Sunday before seeking medical help after pain in her throat.
Although the contest winner will not be travelling to Norway, this year's home entrant, Guri Schanke has stepped in to fill the breach and will be performing tomorrow night. We are also promised some surprise appearances in what is expected to be the largest Eurovision Memory Lane event so far.
